Were you injured in the last three years while working as a foreman? You may be able to start a foreman accident claim. Check your potential claim and what it could be worth by contacting Accident Advice Helpline. Established in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline helps thousands of people annually to make financial compensation claims for personal injuries they suffered because of someone else.
Working as a foreman
Working as a foreman can be rewarding, if risky. Leading a crew on a building or other industrial site, always keeping your deadlines, costs and your colleagues’ safety in mind can be very satisfying. You may have chosen this profession for the pride it gives; finishing projects on time, to a high degree of quality and within budget can really give you job satisfaction. Working with a group of people in construction or manufacturing, however, has in-built risks. Your employer can demand too much, either in terms of effort or deadlines, or your colleagues can have a lapse of care in their work. The fact is that accidents can happen at anytime, even to those with long experience of working and without a blemish on their careers. If your accident as a foreman was caused by somebody else, happened in the last three years and meant that you had to seek medical help, you could be in line for financial compensation.
Document what you know about your accident as a foreman
Claiming for compensation for a personal injury could be speeded up if you document what you know about your accident. Start by writing down everything you can remember about your accident as a foreman, including the date, time and other people involved. State the site location and who you were working for. Take photographs if this would help to clarify details about what happened to you for other people. Keep everything neatly together and ready to show to others. Your personal injury lawyer is likely to ask you for your files regarding your accident, which should include your doctor’s notes about your accident and his or her contact details. The more you document concerning your accident, the better, as long as it is pertinent to its cause and the effects it has had on you, whether psychological or physical.
